    Exactly!
    I’ll stick with my M&P’s thank you very much instead of “perfection” that has to be modified to eliminate built in design issues.
    If the rest of “perfection” has the same issue, I’ll pass.

    Maybe your hand needs modification?

    Glocks aren’t for everyone. Some people simply prefer other makes and models, and that doesn’t make them any better or worse than others :)

    Just messing with you Dennis. If you don’t like it you don’t like it. It’s not that it needs redesign, it works for many and not for some. I’ve got a 43 and a 43x. I’ve also got Glock knuckle on my thumb from gripping them high but I like their reliability and how I shoot them. Some don’t.

    I have a Sig P365 and I like it. But I still like the G43 too. Not really that much difference in them to me as far as shooting them....but in terms of leaving the house with one...there is that little capacity thing that is. Not that that is a huge deal. If 6+1 doesn't get me out of trouble, I'm probably in the wrong place anyway. Now, if you'll excuse me; I have to go slip my P365 AIWB and get ready to got out to dinner.

    Update:

    Never mind, Dennis. I just realized that the Glock 43 and 43X are 9mm. Sorry, but I wouldn't want a substandard round.

    Paul Abel used to refer to the 9mm as a pusillanimous sub caliber round. That's a real word...you can look it up.

    Paul was quite the guy. I once saw him purchase a Star 9mm off a young lady attending one of his classes.

    But I did read on the internet you can hit a man in the thumb with a .45 and it will knock him back 10 feet. Now that’s a real gun.
